SciTalks Lecture Series
The Honors Program features talks on science-related topics each semester:
When Bad Things Happen to Good Brains: The Neuroscience of Brain Trauma
April 21st from 5:00-6:00pm
Dr. Jennifer Stratford
The human brain is perhaps the most delicate part of our body. Protected only by our skulls and an additional underlying sheath, our brains are remarkably susceptible to injury. Yet, we are rarely aware of the brain’s frailty until the brain is damaged in an accident or other traumatic medical event- which is especially surprising given that the brain is responsible for so many of the things that make us individually unique. In this talk, we will uncover the true fragility of our ‘most famous body part’ in a series of interactive stories. First, we will learn about the various ways that trauma impacts the brain, including common neurological disorders that can arise from brain trauma. Then, we will discuss current brain treatment options available. Finally, we will explore new, up-and-coming treatment options that, although not yet widely available, provide new potential therapeutic avenues.

The Music of a Revolution: Connections to Movements of Social Justice and Tragedy
April 14th from 5:30-6:30pm
CASE E230 - CC
Hosted by Dr. Zach Cheever
Music has been a way of expression through grief since early human history. In most recent years, this has led to a copious amount of concert band music with topics relating to social strife including racial equity, gender equity, LGBTQIA rights, disability advocacy, immigration justice, gun violence, and police brutality. Through the lens of social justice and tragic events from 1980-present, this conversation will center around how the repertoire of bands has been enhanced through composers writing music out of this grief. Come listen to new music from untapped musical voices to hear the Music of a Revolution

Join Associate Professor Emmanuel David and Professor Yumi Janairo Roth as they discuss their latest project Shadow Archives: Finding the Filipino Rough Riders of Buffalo Bill's Wild West
In this talk, CU professors Emmanuel David (Women and Gender Studies) and Yumi Janairo Roth (Art and Art History) discuss their interdisciplinary project about the untold story of Filipino performers in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West. They reflect on the process of collaborating with one another and discovering the hidden histories of the Filipino men and women who performed as part of the Congress of Rough Riders of the World. By examining Asian presence in the show, their research and creative work offers new perspectives on histories of the American West.

From the Inside Out
with Dr. Jill Harrison
It is now widely accepted that America’s poorest communities, communities of color, and Native American communities suffer disproportionate harm from environmental hazards, with higher exposure to pollution and higher incidence of lead poisoning, cancer, asthma, and other diseases linked to environmental ills.
Learn how bureaucrats resist, undermine, and disparage environmental justice reform—and how environmental justice reformers within the agencies fight back by trying to change regulatory practice and culture from the inside out.
